The national railway company of Denmark is known as the DSB (Danske Statsbaner). Denmark has over 2,600 km of railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in Denmark can be booked in advance. International trains connect Denmark with neighbouring countries such as Sweden and Germany. Book train tickets to visit main cities of Denmark by train. Danish cities including Odense, Alborg and Copenhagen are all served by trains.
In Copenhagen, visit the 17th-century Round Tower and Tivoli’s 19th-century pleasure gardens. Head north to Dutch renaissance Aalborg, taking Denmark’s DSB train to eclectic Åarhus’s half-timbered cottages and contemporary architecture. Between the main landmasses, Jutland and Zealand, is Fune island and Odense’s Gothic Saint Knud’s Cathedral.
Travel by train through Denmark’s countryside. In the north, cycle across Skagen’s flat landscape and see the waves of the two seas Skagerak and Kattegatt meet at a sandbar. Play golf on Jutland’s rolling greens or kayak along Zealad’s Susåen river or Gudenåen on Jutland.
Buy herb-flavoured spirit aquavit in Aalborg and designer Danish jewellery like Georg Jensen cufflinks. For contemporary interiors, invest in a stylish Bang & Olufsen sound system or ship home vintage minimalist furniture.
Eat & Drink
Try traditional Øllebrød, porridge with rye bread, sugar and beer. Classic Danish dishes include pickled herring, pork with parsley sauce and smoked fish like herring and eel on quiet Bornholm island. Before boarding a DSB train in Denmark, stock up on freshly baked Danish pastries.
Find cutting-edge boutiques and cool cafés along the once-seedy, now transformed Istedgade street in Copenhagen’s eclectic Vesterbro neighbourhood.
